How Does Ocean Speedway Chowchilla Sound?
Chowchilla CA. (2.10.12) - How does Ocean Speedway Chowchilla sound? Well race fans and
drivers alike are getting ready to find out!
A deal was finalized late this afternoon between Kenny Shepherd, John Prentice, and the
Chowchilla Fairgrounds CEO to transfer the remaining two years of the lease to the Ocean
Speedway operator. In addition to the lease transfer, all track support equipment, and
concessions equipment were sold to the management team from the Ocean Speedway.
"First I would like to thank all of my staff and racers that helped us at Chowchilla over the past
three years. I will miss many people, but I'm very excited to be free from the prep work and time
we had to invest into the track. The Madera Speedway is my priority and I have other business
ventures, and at this point my time is much better spent on those ventures verses the Chowchilla
Speedway. I'm very happy we were able to put this deal together with John, it is very important
to me to have a good operator that can work well with this great Fair Board, CEO, and community
" Kenny Shepherd.
The racechowchilla.com website will be transferred to the new buyers soon, so racers can get
updates and the 2012 schedule via the same site. Look for some exciting announcements very

Thank You for 2011!
(11.22.11) - As I'm working on plans for the 2012 season I would like to take a minute and express
my sincere appreciation to the sponsors, owners, drivers, crew members and fans that supported
our race tracks during the 2011 season. I enjoy running the race tracks, and I really enjoy the big
events, but most of all I appreciate the relationships, and friends I have in our sport.
I would also like to thank our staff for the excellent job they performed all season long. From the
ticket sales, to the folks running the races and everyone in between it is a real pleasure working
I would especially like to thank everyone that attended the banquet, it was a wonderful time and a
great way to end a racing season that so many of us should be very proud of. The focal point of the
banquet has become the Children's Hospital Raffle, but this year we also added a fund raiser for
the Harmon family, and I feel it speaks volumes about the quality of character in our racing family
that even in such tough times our sport can be so giving. Click Here for more....
